If you require a document in a different file format than we currently provide, you can request it from us and we will try to accommodate you.

Document File Size

In most cases, documents of the above file types will also display the size of the file after the icon. This can help you determine how long it will take for a larger file to download. For example, under ideal conditions, a 500KB file will take a little over one minute to download on a 56k dial-up connection. A 1MB file will take around two and a half minutes on a 56k dial-up connection
